The Seagull or Silver Gull in Australia has become a very successful scavenger, often pestering or stealing food from humans and searching the tip for food scraps.
Although they might not appear it at first glance, these birds are more intelligent than you may think. A 2019 study showed herring gulls, found along the shores of western Europe and the UK, are aware of the direction of the human gaze. The herring gulls in the study more quickly snatched up food placed near a person, when the person was looking away. Other research also found the gulls were much more likely to peck at food a human had handled, rather than food that hadn’t been touched.
